Ah, yes... now this is more like it!

I am very happy to be able to report lots of fresh snow down here in the village area and just hearing the numbers from the resort:

Yamabiko - 35cm
Uenotaira - ?cm
Hikage - 30cm
Nagasaka - 30cm
Karasawa - 20cm

So up to 35cm of fresh snow on the upper slopes this morning, with Uenotaira area yet to report. (I suspect they may well report more).

I haven't been hearing of any reports of lift or course closings early this morning, but care will be needed with these quickly changing conditions.

It is suitably cold (minus 7 degrees here at base and a very cold indeed minus 14 degrees up top),but has also been very windy overnight. The wind has calmed down a lot though now and actually (and unfortunately) the snow has been easing off - down here anyway - and even some clouds breaking up showing a bit of sky in places.

I'm looking at a few forecasts here now and they are saying different things... cloud for the day, snow showers for the day. Looks like overnight was the peak of what we are getting this time anyway.

Saturday onwards into next week is looking to be rather snowy as well, so things are looking up. Hopefully that mild dry spell is behind us!
